Notes & Reviews:

BMOP/sound features innovative San Francisco-based composer Mason Bates on its latest release. The disc's eponymous work, Mothership, received its premiere in a live broadcast from the Sydney Opera House with the YouTube Symphony in 2001. Bates, who enjoys a parallel career as a DJ and curator of pioneering new music projects, integrates electronic sounds with the orchestra in Mothership - also featuring special guest improvisers Jason Moran on FM Rhodes and Su Chang on guzheng - and in the Appalachian-inspired Rusty Air in Carolina. Bates channels the depths of the ocean and Arizonan desert vistas, respectively, in Sea-Blue Circuitry and Desert Transport. With the witty, agile concert opener Attack Decay Sustain Release, this collection demonstrates why Mason Bates has become one of the mostperformed orchestral composers of the present day. His works are given exceptionally insightful and polished performances by the expert Boston Modern Orchestra Project under conductor Gil Rose.
